The new collection of beautiful, peaceful songs from Manchester's Poodleplay Arkestra. A new release from Poodleplay Arkestra is always something to look forward to. Their music, although influenced by many, Jon Hassell and Brian Eno among them, inhabits a special place all of its own. Guitars, piano, strings and soundscapes cascade around you. A wonderful piece of work. More at poodleplayarkestra.bandcamp.com

On Saturday, 7th April 2012, musicians around the world each wrote and recorded a complete new song, from scratch in one day - all on the same day! The next day, these songs were collected and put together as this album. The day after that, the album was released as a free download! After the success of Album In A Day volumes 1-3, we had to do this all over again. The enthusiastic response from listeners and everyone involved is fantastic.

Prolific ambient musician Bing Satellites returns with an album of slow, drifting ambient music. In his own words - Record everything! That is the rule I try to live by. The music on this album was recorded in one week in March 2012, a week when I was rather unwell and thought I had done very little other than take my cold medicine and watch TV in bed. I played a few soothing tunes on the piano (well, my facsimile of a piano) from time to time, but it came as quite a surprise to find that all...

Eko_Fisk's sixth release on BFW is, in his own words, a kind of a space opera that came to me after watching some scifi movies... I developed a plot and soundtrack in my head. This is a collection of short ambient electronic songs. Spacey and atmospheric but tinged with an eerie darkness. A wonderful piece of work.

The third in the series of live, improvised ambient albums. Another 17 quiet ambient songs - mainly piano and baritone guitar - with 17 accompanying photographs. How the music is created: A 16 bar phrase is played. That phrase is fed into a slowly decaying 16 bar loop, similar to the one used in Twilight Sessions. That loop is fed into a slowly decaying 6 bar loop which repeats the first loop every 6 bars, so that soon, there are several layers of the original phrase that interact and create...

A selection of live, improvised recordings from March, April and May 2012, performed on piano, synths, flute and clarinet plus a whole host of electronic wizardry. My studio set up is constantly evolving and this album takes advantage of that. This album includes two early experiment with playing live instruments (flute on 'Voices inside my head' and clarinet on 'Denner's travels in harsh static') through pitch pedals.

The new abstract ambient album from Closer Contact. Magnus Larsson returns with his sixth release on BFW (including his collaborations with Meteer). This is yet another ambient tour de force - an album of mysterious electronic soundscapes. In his own words - I've tried to create a straight down ambient album with more or less no rhythm involved. Some of the songs are kind of divided into separate parts within and the last song ends with some glitchy clicking going on. I've used my very...

The fantastic new ambient album from SineRider, his sixth release on BFW. The album is made using a old hand held tape recorder and making drones out of and sampling those recordings. There is hiss and crackle, wow and flutter that could only come from such a source. This gives the album a unique atmospheric feel. Couple that with the ear and skill of a producer such as SineRider and you have an ambient masterpiece on your hands.

The new experimental ambient album from Meteer. This is another triumph! Meteer once again delivers an album of immense beauty. A kind of slow and glitchy atmospheric ambience that is at once electronic and organic. This kind of music could be cold but I always feel with Meteer's music that we are watching a story unfold around us.
